Re-cycle home on the way

If you visit the park in a couple of weeks, you will probably notice three new container buildings that will become the home of our Bike Recycling Project. We’ve had a few ideas on an apt name for the project but if you have a witty or even, dare we say, sensible idea, then why not email us on communications@friendsofhardiepark.co.uk

101 things to do in Essex over the Summer

We popped up on-line this week. Essex Live have listed 101 things to do in Essex over the summer. We’re were number 28!  We think that’s quite an achievement for a little local community park. Your recommendation is also a great for us to encourage new visitors. Thanks to any of you who share our news and talk about the park to your friends, neighbours and family. It all helps!

A snapshot of Hardie

Coming soon…. Blatella Films will be working with us to create a tool to spread the word about what it is we do. It’s this kind of thing that allows us to apply for various funding opportunities which in turn keep Hardie Park manned and providing an amazing community hub. There’s lots of opportunities to tap into pockets of cash to deliver the great service Hardie provides. Examples being the shed project and the new bike project which is just getting started. Watch this space :0)

Super slide installation

Mud, mud, glorious mud! The foundations shaped up and we are so looking forward to the opening of our new super slide. Fundraising by the Hardie Team, local clubs, visitors and businesses over the last year has been aided by a £14,000 chunk of Community Environmental Development Fund from Thurrock Council helping us achieve the target needed to complete installation of the play equipment.

If you visit the park you will see the fenced construction area for the slide. Please note the signage, UNDER CONSTRUCTION – SLIDE INCOMPLETE – NO ACCESS PERMITTED

One of our customers Adam Kortlandt is doing the final push on a bike to make the bullseye. What a star! He’s cycling in the London Prudential 100 ride on the 4th August. His fundraising link is >HERE<  if you would like to donate.
